From Warehouse to Townhouse

In an old warehouse/loft in TriBeCa, Dean/Wolf Architects have created what I think is a little piece of heaven.  Three double storey spaces were removed from the building to create incredible voids that run vertically throughout (see rendering above).  The interior screens are used as a way to delineate the spaces as well as tie the materials together vertically.  I am not quite sure how I feel about all the rusted steel and metal running throughout the house, but i guess I have a little more tolerance for it as it plays on the whole warehouse, industrial feel that the space is trying to evoque. This warehouse come townhouse has a great play on volumes, materials and light and although it might not be to everyones taste, I think is a great example of how architects and designers are always pushing boundaries.
